Pedro Bravo On Trial
They say it's taking too long for their son to get justice.
Seven months after a UF student was murdered, the family of Christian Aguilar says the case against his accused killer is slowly working its way through the courts.
Police arrested Pedro Bravo for murder after they found duct tape and a small shovel in his possession several days after Aguilar's disappearance.
Originally, Bravo told police he had beaten Aguilar and left him on the side of the road in Northwest 13th Street.
But Christian's body was found by hunters in rural Levy County.
Aguilar's family was in court Tuesday only to hear the next step is will be another case management hearing on June 11th.
"We want justice. We want this person to be tried, Justice has to be served, That's why we're here and will continue to be here as many times needed," Carlos Aguilar (Christian's Father) said.
No new evidence was presented at the hearing.
The judge of the case, Martha Lott, is retiring at the end of May and a new judge will be assigned to the case.
